KDE Desktop Question

I finished installing Fedora Core 3 and have the Gnome and KDE desktops as part of the system. When I start the KDE desktop, I get the bluecurve-like version of KDE rather than the vanilla version that is available on other Linux distros. What is the best way to get/install the vanilla version of KDE on Fedora? Thanks.

I believe this is done quite autmatically these days. Go fetch it from the web. untar, point the KDE to it KDE Control center is one fine way to going about it

I went to the KDE website and downloaded the konstruct script to help with the installation. The script exited with an Error 2 message citing the qt-X11-free-3.3.3 system compiler was not supported. Besides downloading each binary separately, is there another automated means for my being able to install 'vanilla' KDE on a Fedora Core 3 system? Thanks.
